HAMAS-linked CAIR has been quietly indoctrinating Tampa-area public high school students with Islamic propaganda

CAIR (The Council on American-Islamic Relations) of Florida, Tampa chapter posted an article on Facebook on December 3rd, stating that it had given seven presentations on Islam in the last week to over a dozen different AP world history and world religions public high school classes in the Tampa area.

           Florida Political Press –According to the report, which did not name the high schools visited, the presentations covered topic such as basic Muslim beliefs, Islamic history, Islam and human rights, religious tolerance and diversity, and popular misconceptions about Islam.

Which immediately raises the question how is an organization that is widely believed to be linked to terrorism gaining access to high school students in Florida public schools and are these students being subjected to indoctrination and propaganda?

CAIR adamantly denies any links to terrorism, however, in March 2010 the FBI issued a letter to Congress affirming CAIR’s terrorist ties.

CAIR-Tampa Speaks to 500 High School Students About Islam

 FaceBook  (TAMPA, FL, 12/2/11) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations of Florida, Tampa chapter (CAIR-Tampa), gave seven presentations on Islam this week to over a dozen different AP world history and world religions public high school classes in the Tampa area. The presentations covered topic such as basic Muslim beliefs, Islamic history, Islam and human rights, religious tolerance and diversity, and popular misconceptions about Islam.

“Conflict is ultimately the result of hatred resulting from misunderstanding. By learning about each other we can come to appreciate and respect each other. The beauty of American diversity is that we may disagree on issues of politics or faith, yet such differences need not prohibit us from working together for a better society,” said CAIR Tampa Executive Director Hassan Shibly.

Shibly also emphasized that the fear-mongering against American Muslims today orchestrated by Islamophobes is no different than the discrimination many other religious, ethnic and racial groups faced as they integrated into the fabric of American Society. “We must value the freedoms, rights and respect for diversity, that distinguishes our nation and never take such freedoms for granted. When one group of Americans lose their rights, we all do.”

CAIR Tampa also lectured this week at one of the world’s top Arts College’s on Islamophobia and challenges facing American Muslims in addition to lecturing at an Adult Education University on Islamic beliefs and history.

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant, he said. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth, he said.”

Hassan Shibley is telling your children that Abraham, Moses, and Jesus were all prophets of Islam.

Why is Hassan Shibly, executive director of CAIR-Tampa, and avowed Islamic terrorist supporter, allowed to speak in American classrooms?

As the original story details, there are multiple, well established ties between CAIR and various terrorist groups.

Florida Political Press  The CAIR-Tampa chapter is currently led by executive director Hassan Shibly, who, according to The Investigative Project on Terrorism, ‘has a track record of defending terrorist groups and acting as an apologist for radical Islam‘.

As for Hassan Shibly, the IPT report states;

Iran's Admadinejad & Hizballah's Nasrallah

Hassan Shibly has a track record of defending terrorist groups and acting as an apologist for radical Islam. Shibly granted legitimacy to Hizballah by characterizing it as a “resistance movement” that provides valued social services to the Lebanese people. “They’re absolutely not a terrorist organization,” Shibly said, and “any war against them is illegitimate.”

As a testament to his support for Hizballah’s cause, Shibly even expressed a desire to travel to Lebanon to aid the group’s war effort. When asked to explicitly condemn Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups, Shibly wouldn’t.

Shibly defended a radical imam killed by the FBI after he opened fire on agents moving in to arrest him. In an October 2009 post, Shibly questioned the use of force against Imam Luqman Abdullah even though the criminal complaint against him made it clear Abdullah advocated violent jihad and urged followers never to surrender peacefully to authorities.

Shibly seems to have adopted anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views of his own. In one of his Facebook notes, Shibly equates Israelis with Nazis, juxtaposing images from the Holocaust with images of Israeli soldiers interacting with Palestinians. He also describes Israel as an apartheid state and frequently denounces its “state terrorism.”

Shibly’s disdain for Israel is matched only by his ill-will towards America.  In addition to expressing distrust of government agencies, like the FBI, Shibly has also linked to an article calling President Bush a war criminal; accused America of being imperialistic and consumed by its pursuit of oil; and endorsed conspiracy theories about U.S. actions, including questioning the U.S. 9/11 narrative and promoting the idea that the U.S. backs Iraqi suicide bombings to justify its presence there.

In the 2010 interview, Shibly said that Sharia law, and not democracy, should be implemented in countries where Muslims are the majority.

 In 2004, Shibly was detained with several others at the Canadian border while returning from the “Reviving Islamic Spirit” conference in Toronto. The conference featured a host of controversial speakers, including the virulent anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and William Baker, an anti-Semite with neo-Nazi connections. Shibly sued the Department of Homeland Security for what he believed was racial profiling, but lost the initial case and the appeal after courts found his detainment was not overly intrusive.
“In this instance, we had credible intelligence that conferences similar to the one from which these individuals were leaving were being used by terrorist organizations to fundraise and to hide the travel of terrorists themselves,” said Kristi Clemens, spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Mr. Shibly seems at times to support or work with Islamists who are leading advocates for political Islam,” wrote M. Zuhdi Jasser, the founder of the American-Islamic Forum for Democracy. “But when they [Islamists] become violent, he tries to distance himself with no corroborating public record to demonstrate a genuine ideological battle.”

This is the kind of Islamopropaganda with which Hassan Shibly is brainwashing your children.

Hassan Shibly attacks FL Rep. Allen West and GOP Senate Candidate Adam Hasner, apparently upset that Republicans are getting wise to the thug like tactics of terrorist front groups like CAIR

Red County  Yesterday, Hillsborough Republican Executive Committee (REC) member Scott Barrish courageously responded to a hit piece or more appropriately a propaganda piece directed against Congressman Allen West and Senate Candidate Adam Hasner, posted in the St. Pete Times by CAIR Tampa’s Executive Director Hassan Shibly titled “US Muslims are not the Enemy”.

BARRISH stated in his post “Islam is NOT a religion, but rather a theocracy. It uses elements of religion to bind a spiritual, cultural and system of law elements.  It is NOT a pluralistic ideology for it seeks complete domination”.

Barrish’s response has Shibly asking the state and national Republican Party to repudiate his statement, the only problem for Shibly is Barrishs statements correctly reflect the core tenants’ of Islamic Doctrine and Sharia Law (i.e. Sharia Law Manual – Book of Justice, Book “O” 9.0  Warfare against the non-Muslim to establish the religion, this verse is the final and authoritative verse on the Jihad, however most of the Jihad we see in America is a Cultural Jihad prior to the major conflict stage as recently seen in Egypt and Libya).

The REC of Broward County recently denied Nezar Hamze of CAIR Miami membership due to the many CAIR controversies to include their designation as a co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in US history (US vs HLF Trial, Texas 2008), in which CAIR members were sentenced to 65 years in prison.

While few reject the goal to “promote cooperation and understanding between diverse faiths and cultures”, one has to ask if CAIR-Tampa is the proper and prudent choice to be gaining an audience with young, impressionable high school students.

And were parents from Hillsborough County even made aware that CAIR-Tampa would be in the classroom?  Who is responsible for approving this?  Do parents have access to the material covered with their children by the group?  Is this happening at other school districts in Florida?  Would you be comfortable with this arrangement at your local school? There seems to be more questions than answers at this point.
